Man, I think you can run this game. Low settings no aa at 1366x768 or lower resolutions. You can use fraps and msi afterburn for measuring fps[they are more accurate than anyone's guess].

contrary to many might say, i love this game, love everything about it, the visuals, the physics, and i can really feel the speed with them fast cars here.. maybe because it felt nostalgic, the visuals reminds me of gran turismo 2..
